Video: The Making Of Ricky Gervais’ Derek

After a boat-rocking pilot last year, Ricky GervaisDerek is to return to Channel 4 with a full series next week. The show will be making its US premiere on Netflix later in the year.

This half hour “Making of” has a lot of Karl Pilkington highlights, as well as Gervais’ explanation of why Derek looks the way he does.

I can see exactly where the controversy comes from, but hearing Gervais explain his position, I wonder if this is more a case of good intentions gone awry than any kind of malice.

Indeed, it may even end up being a case of good intentions landing correctly. We’ll see next week.
